Bent to refill 
my glass saw 
in passing 
as young as 
he was then 
he's not now

My love for
You is secure

Is this real
Or surreal
In my first role
Will the rite
Let me be right

sherku: serendipity

Deep in the
Space between
A and B
Sudden joy
No more red lines

Twas a flashback

Pants found too late
To change before
Getting to work

sherku: listening

Do you hear the snow
It is slowly
Building walls
Waves piles
To keep us in

inspired by George Ezra's "Did you hear the rain?"

sherku: pattern

Snow on Monday
Snow on Monday
Snow on Monday
Trend, pattern

sherku: Mall stop

They had it planned 
Headed for the bench 
One sat one combed 
Twirled braided 
While smiling

Composed while people watching at the Emarld Square Mall recently

sherku: George Ezra

Juno snowed 
on Franklin 
found Gandalf 
singing so I 
just listened 
to the man


composed while cruising in Facebook and discovering on a snowy day
got hypnotized by the voice of George Ezra

ghazal: Weikert July 2014

There’s no wifi, points don’t matter
But before each meal
We pause to give thanks

Fallen tree diverted the trail
Along shaded rail line
Where folks gave thanks

Infant music box conjures
Ice cream, grass stained fun
And fire flies giving thanks

Intense or cursive the
Fire circle discussion
Solves enough to give thanks

Joy of sewing triumph fades
Quickly with news of three
Sleeping so well to give thanks

Juggling cans, crossing over
Monkey bridge where laurel
Line the path saying thanks

Composed in Weikert, PA

sherku: Weikert 6

Juggling cans
Crossing over
Monkey bridge
Where laurel
Line the path
Saying thanks

sherku: Weikert 5

Joy of sewing
Triumph fades
Quickly with 
News of three
Sleeping so well
To give thanks
